  • Visit the promotion page and click on to download Ashampoo WinOptimizer 6.
  • After you have finished downloading, install it. Take note during installation that Ashampoo tries to install Ashampoo toolbar:

Be sure to uncheck all that if you don’t want it (most of us won’t want it nor do you need it to use Ashampoo WinOptimizer 6).

  • After installation, the registration page should open automatically. If it doesn’t you can visit it by clicking here. When the registration page loads, enter your e-mail address in the box shown and click “Senden”:

Take note that in addition to registering for the free cdkey, you are opting in to receive Ashampoo “service letters”. (You can opt-out of letters after you register via MyAshampoo.)

  • If you have registered with Ashampoo in the past with the same e-mail address you just used, you will be asked to login to the Ashampoo account:

Login. (If you don’t remember your password, go back and register with a new e-mail address.)

After you login, click on “Kostenlose Lizenzen” and you will be shown the registration code for Ashampoo WinOptimizer 6:

Copy the registration code – you will need it to register the software.

  • If you used an e-mail address new to Ashampoo, you will need to confirm your e-mail address. So, check the inbox of the e-mail you entered. Look for an e-mail from “Ashampoo (” with subject of “Registrierung (Schritt 1) … folgen Sie dem Link in dieser E-Mail”. In the e-mail you will find a link that you need to follow:

Follow the link.

Once the page loads, you will be asked to fill out a registration form:

Click on “OK, senden” when finished.

Check the inbox of the e-mail again that you registered with. You should have another e-mail from “Ashampoo (” with the subject of “Ihre Registrierung – Ashampoo® WinOptimizer 6 (F_cbo_de) (Deutsch)”. In the e-mail there will be your registration code:

Copy the registration code – you will need to register the software.

  • Run Ashampoo WinOptimizer 6; you will be asked to register the software. Register it with the license code you received:

  • Enjoy! Take note you may be asked to upgrade to WinOptimizer 7. Click “Do not upgrade” unless you want to purchase Ashampoo WinOptimizer 7:

    hi ashraf .i sometimes visit your forum .
    now may i ask u to review this freeware called “Fcleaner”which i tested and found is comparable to advanced system optimizer which is not a freeware.i came to this conclusion as i have both of these and have checked them against each other.though “aso” has extras being commercial software.also it is is very fast.please review it and tell others.

    @Dragonheart: Re: comment #12:

    Not to blame Revo! I deliberately did a low-level uninstall in hopes that it would leave v.6 files and reg….:-)….

  • Lascannon

    Agreed, I uninstalled it since it’s not much of a useful program. WinUtilities have most of the things already, and I’m the type who wants my laptop to stay fresh and clean as possible. :D

    WARNING! re Single-Click Cleanup

    Users of googleDesktop and similar devices should be warned that the Ashampoo single-click process automatically wipes your search history and disables the gDesktop.

    Fortunately this is not a disaster, since there is a log, and you can easily undo the operation. But it made my aging heart skip a beat when I got a popup saying “google Desktop is not working”! As a scholar, I find this (free) utility absolutely indispensable.

    So yes, Ashraf, I agree with your “hmmm”: I already have winUtilities, and no complaints about it.


    And all prosperous (or even preposterous) dotTechies should send Ashraf a small donation. A good time for you to do so is on your birthday, when you’re buried in presents; but any day would do: even today.

    Even Revo doesn’t remove everything. In some cases, and perhaps this is one of them, some registrykeys  remain in the registry.
    If I scan my registry with “License Crawler” it often finds some serialkeys of software that was removed by Revo. ;-)

  • janet


    Interesting. I installed 7 over 6 and lost my registration. Then when I removed 7 (RevoUninstaller), it took out everything. So I reinstalled 6, and, according to what you say, it was automatically registered….:-)….

  • Dragonheart

    After installation you had to fill in the serial-key to register.
    That’s all. Indeed you can’t see in the about-section but if you didn’t register the software asks for a serial every time you start it.

  • janet

    How can I tell if it is, in fact, registered? Can’t see it in About.

    Hi Guys!

  • Dragonheart

    To All.
    Ashampoo software is very good and so is this one.
    I use several programs made by Ashampoo and I’am very satisfied.
    If you already have a cleaner an optimizer, this one seems to be unneccessary but it,s got features others don’t.
    The serialkey you’ll get is (as far as I know) valid forever, but only for this version. So you don’t have to install it today.
    It also seems to be that the licensekey is for everyone the same.

    I tremendously value your reviews of software. You are thorough and to the point. You are respectful (you’ve never called someone’s product “garbage”), but also forthright in your conclusions.

    This is what I miss when you post freebies, like this one or ones which are direct from the programmer (like the many Paragon promotions). I’m a sucker for something free; but it’s also important to know whether the freebie is worth anything, or should I go with an alternative.

    Thanks for ALL you do!

  • anemailname

    Is this one better than Advanced System Care 3?
    It seems to have a little more to it but would rather have your opinion.

  • mgoj

    What happens if I want to get the key now and install the software later?
    Is there a time limit for installing the software?
    Thank you,

  • Ashraf

    @Jamster Mc: Hmmm… probably not.

  • Jamster Mc

    Hi Ashraf, Do you think that their is any point of getting this software if i already have WinUtilities installed ???
    Great work =)
    Thanks, Jamster Mc
